day out there today and we are looking at a fine evening. no question about that. temperature wise, 71, nights starting to run on the cool side. not quite as cool as last night. about five degrees warmer. days getting short era round here but what a day it was. sunshine, nice sunset. robert w coleman. nice finish to the day in the state capitol where temperatures were up in the mid80s. ocean city always the place to be. we have a little summer left. we will look at a good friday at the beach. there will be changes we think at least for saturday. may be showers in the mix at the beach. talk about that in a second. temperatures now, low, mid-70s. near 80 in easton. you are the warm spot there but most of us looking good. high temperatures today again reaching women in to the midand upper 80's. a chain of upper 80's from philadelphia to baltimore. bit of a warm section through the heart of the midatlantic.
pattern has been relatively quiet until the last two hours, seen the clouds start to creep in out of the south and east. what we are watching is a developing coastal off the carolina coast. this is a system that could play havoc with the weather locally in to the weekend. especially the key timing will be midday saturday through saturday flight and even early sunday morning. especially along the beaches, you see the coastal system spinning up. rain from the cape back through charleston. that system will continue to develop here through the overnight hours in to early morning. it'll be a dry friday around here with high pressure controlling things, as that low comes up the coast we get spiraling. could impact the beach areas and maybe the entire eastern shore, areas the chesapeake east. most likely see showers through the day on friday. high pressure just west of us, we will keep it dry from baltimore westward through most of the weekend. especially into sunday. let's talk about isaac.
isaac looked strong this morning, weaker through the eastern central caribbean. now south of haiti. very warm water. a lower shear environment. just what we need to see. getting better organized here. we will see what kind of storm we have in the morning but the power house storm and the track of this will bring it over cuba as a result the storm will weaken and high mountains will probably be flooding rains. the trakas we look toward florida has been adjusted westward more and more so, most of the models pushing it west, further west. as a result it looks like perhaps it's a glancing blow for southwest florida and more of a central panhandle into mississippi and alabama storm if it redevelops in to a hurricane this is way out. this is five-days out. sort of in the land of voodoo for hurricane forecasting but we will see what happening. right now looks like the convention may be okay.
tonight 64, partly cloudy, patchy late fog. sun and clouds, how much cloud cover in patches tomorrow afternoon. if we get a lot of cloud cover, maybe down in the low and mid80s. tomorrow night a late shower to the east possible toward the beaches mainly. here is the outlook again. friday mostly dry. cloudy late in the day. scattered in to saturday especially from the chesapeake eastward. we will put the chance in. not all day but scattered showers, from sunday into monday a drying trend. temperatures in the mid80's. a chance for thunderstorms at times toward the middle of next week. again not advertising a wash out here. i just want to say that saturday especially east of the chesapeake, toward the beaches, maybe some rain. >> thank you. >> how do you like our shirts? >> it's much more abc 2news after the break. >> first a look at night line. >> coming up on night line we take you inside an atheist
community and for launching her bonk this way foundation, also beyonce, jlo and ellen. >> all right. powerful women. there you go. >> take a look. good weather as we start the day off. clouds increase by four. another day in the mid to upper 80e. changes we think for the weekend. we cloud up saturday. that will hold temperatures down. east breeze holds temperatures down and i think the showers will mainly be to the east. east of the chesapeake, east -- hit and miss showers, otherwise not a bad deal weather wise.
